Dr. Jim B. Tucker's research has also come to conclude that the presence of unusual birthmarks on a child's body can also prove to be a link to their life in the past. Approximately 20 percent of the rebirth cases recorded, consisted of birthmarks or defects that were identical to the wounds on the body of their previous life's human form. Does that conclude that each and every birthmark means something?

According to a research article titled Experimental Birthmarks: New Cases of an Asian Practice by Dr. Jim B. Tucker and H. H. Jürgen Keil, "A field study was undertaken in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) to examine such cases. Eighteen cases were found in which a baby was born with a birthmark that corresponded to a marking made on the body of a deceased person; in six of these, the child also made statements that the family believed were related to the life of the deceased individual."
The study done by Dr. Stevenson which is continued by Dr. Tucker after his death, has compelled even scientists and those with logical thinking to agree that it is illogical to avoid the findings done through their research, and that there is a high probability that life and death is perhaps an unending circle, and we tend to continue our karmic journey from one era to the other in the form of different avatars, experiencing our karmic exploration through living many lives.
To conclude, we would just leave it at this note that not all birthmarks may mean a connection with a previous life. However, if yours is something unusual, and if you have additional reasons to support your belief of it being associated with a rebirth―phobias, memories, inherent talents, and the likes―then, if need be, you can unravel the mystery behind these cumulative past life signs through regressive therapy. However, experts also warn that sometimes, peeking into the past may make you more uncomfortable than you are at present. So, evaluate the need and decide accordingly.
